For iPad and Computer

Powerful iPad Apps

Launchkey Mini comes with a duo of powerful apps for iPad, which transform it into a true production and performance instrument. Use the Launchpad app with Launchkey Mini on your iPad to launch the included professional sample library and control effects, letting you produce and perform music right away. Load in new sound packs and import your own samples for an even more unique performance, then share your creation with your fan-base by uploading directly to Soundcloud and Dropbox.

Launchkey app for iPad is a synth filled with Novation technology, allowing you to control notes with the Launchkey Mini's keyboard while warping the sound with the knobs or via intuitive multi touch control on the iPad's screen. Launchkey and Launchpad apps sync together perfectly for simultaneous use – set an arpeggiator on the Launchkey app and switch to the Launchpad app to build the beats behind it, for example – and both apps are fully Audiobus compatible.
